#amreading – What, Why, While :   The Night She Vanished by Wendy Dranfield @WendyDranfield      @bookouture

What (am I currently reading)?

I am currently reading the crime thriller The Night She Vanished by Wendy Dranfield.  This is a standalone thriller, which is being published by the wonderful Bookouture on 14 March 2023.

My parents seem to be the perfect couple. But no one knows what I know…

Everyone in the small Midwestern town of Henderson looks up to my perfect parents. With dependable jobs as a midwife and the town sheriff, they help this close-knit community feel safe. But the locals didn’t grow up in my parents’ house. They don’t know what I know. And they wouldn’t believe me if I told them…

After my best friend vanished when we were just fifteen, I left town and never looked back. I couldn’t prove it, but I think my parents killed her.

Now, years later, my little sister has vanished. I have no choice but to go home and play happy families again. Because I have to find out what my parents have done to her. I have to try to save her.

But when bones are discovered on a local farm, and all the evidence leads back to our front door, I realize I was wrong about absolutely everything. And that coming back was the deadliest thing I could do…

An utterly gripping read that will have you on the edge of your seat long into the night. If you like Freida McFadden, Lisa Jewell and Gone Girl you will love The Night She Vanished.

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

Because it is a standalone crime thriller by Wendy Dranfield, and therefore can’t be missed!   I was so excited when Bookouture offered me an ARC of this.  Loving every moment! 

Wendy Drayton has also written a 5 books (so far??) crime Detective Madison Harper series – I’m working my way through that. 

Wendy’s previous standalone thriller  The Birthday Party  was also great.  Follow the link to my review of it. 

While (I am reading it)

I’m still taking umpteen pictures of our young cat.  Despite having numerous (I am embarrassed to say how many) cat beds around the house, he prefers to sleep anywhere but on a cat bed.  Anyone else have a cat that does this? 

All the best,  Emma

  1. Cute pictures 😻 I gave up with beds for my dog, they were either destroyed or ignored. He will sleep in the one bed I have upstairs though. I have to prise him out of it in the morning!
